The Majestic is finally getting the investment it deserves and once completed I am sure this would get a five star review from me.

On the positive side:
- The hotel exudes Victorian elegance and some fo the public spaces are magnificent
- Central Harrogate is a very short (, 5 mins) wlk from the hotel so it is very well positioned
- Harrogate itself is a nice town
- Staff are welcoming and hospitable
- My bedroom was spacious
- Breakfast buffet was extensive

However, there are still rough edges:
- Equipment in the gym seems old and worn out
- Heating in the bedroom is very difficult to control
- My bedroom was in need of refurbishment, particularly the bathroom

Overall I had a good stay and would be happy to stay again.

Stayed here just for 1 night room only. Got upgraded to superior double which was a lovely large room with a bay window, large comfy bed and pillows, blackout curtains, large wardrobe, iron, ironing board, hairdryer and tea making facilities. Lovely bathroom, everything was spotless, got complimentary robes and slippers. Took a while to get some hot water through for a bath, but it is an old building. Bar facilities are a bit limited and like all hotels drinks are expensive, but not as expensive as some we have been to. Car parking charge of £3.50 per day and our friends were charged parking as well even though we only went in 1 car! Used leisure facilities which were ok, clean but basic compared to some hotels I have been to (towels provided) We did not eat at the hotel as we went into town which is only 5 minutes walk away, the path through the hotel grounds to the main road is not very well lit so be careful. Would definitely go back again especially as the interior of the hotel is fantastic if you like the Victorian/Edwardian period.

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Harrogate. The hotel is The hotel is huge and looks quite impressive from the outside. On arrival to the hotel car park - which is £3.50 a day to park (totally unnecessary and makes the hotel look desperate for cash) - we were welcomed and directed to our first floor room. The room was huge, almost too big with 3 wardrobes! The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. The windows were drafty and made quite a racket when the wind blew. The bathroom was also huge and the shower which was inside the bath with a curtain was just adequate. The odd thing was when the bedside light wasn't on, half the bathroom lights would be off! We didn't eat in the hotel except for breakfast which was very nice. Staff were quite good but maybe needed to proactive rather than reactive to stocking up the food (often waited for something to completely run out before going to restock). We had a drink in the bar which ok except the background music was stuck playing the same part of a tune for the full hour without being changed. Also had to wait to be served a while as the bar man didn't seem to know the order to serve people.

The gym and pool was adequate. A very small gym wasn't helped by some equipment not working. The pool and jacuzzi were small and was little room to move but this was just the time I chose to go I guess.

Overall a reasonable stay at a large hotel in a good location. It cost us nothing as we paid in Tesco vouchers, which is probably why we weren't asked if we'd enjoyed our stay when we left, but certainly wouldn't pay full price to stay here.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

New year break for our family of 4. Large well appointed room. Wonderful breakfasts under chandeliers and enjoyed the pool facilities. Bathroom a little bit tired but didn't detract from a nice stay in a very well located hotel. Would return if a similar deal was available from Puma Hotels.

Room Tip: Our view overlooked the town and grounds so was great for us.
